Powerful Secret #1 Create Powerful Headlines
For new bloggers as well as veteran bloggers it is important to write a compelling headline. Having a compelling headline will draw your visitor to open up your article and read it. This means that your visitor will stay on your website/blog longer and possible continue reading other articles. Using your keywords as part of your compelling headlines will also help with SEO, which means getting your article indexed in Google and other search engines. You need to know your target audience and what type of language that appeals to them. Get into the mind of your target audience and you have the words that will work for them. Remember there are no shortcuts here. You have to figure out your precise audience and write directly to the way those people feel.
Powerful Secret #2 Submit Your Article to Directories
OK, I know what you’re thinking, I really do. You’re thinking why would I submit my articles to directories when I just posted it to my website/blog! Right…see I know you were. Submitting your articles to the top directories helps to brand YOU and to get you and your website/blog out in the search engines. The article directories have a high page rank in the search engines and your article will get indexed in Google and other search engines quicker. EzineArticles is where I first submitted my articles and they have a very high rating with the search engines. I’m now considered an “Expert Author” which is great. There are several other directories that you can submit your post to but start with ExinzeArticles first and then submit to the others. Submitting your articles will give you back links to your website/blog.
Powerful Secret #3 Make Use of Social Media
Using Social Media as a marketing strategy in your website/blog is very important to new bloggers. Social Media is all the buzz and is very important for viral marketing your website/blog. It helps to spread the word about your website/blog, posts and your business. It is online marketing at its best. When you have visitors to your website/blog and you give them a means to share your post to others that is viral marketing. Using a Facebook and/or Twitter plugin gives your visitors an easy way to help “advertise” your business. Using social networking is a like a big neon sign which speaks volumes about your website/blog saying check this out!
Powerful Secret #4 Use Ping Techniques
Ping techniques? What? As a new blogger I realize that there are so many new ideas, terms and things that must be completed to building your website/blog. Now don’t worry you will learn what you need when you need it. So, what is pinging and why should you ping your website/blog? In a nutshell pinging your website/blog allows you to notify or inform Google, other search engines and directories that your site has been updated. It’s like raising that red flag telling search engines that you have something new on your website/blog, come and see! Now you only want to ping your site once a day and evening would be the best time. Here is just one site that I would recommend, pingler it’s free and easy.
Powerful Secret #5 Use Powerful Plugins
There are many different plugins and it can be confusing to new bloggers to decide which ones are the best and just why you would use them. If you are using WordPress and I highly recommend that you use WordPress to build your website/blog you can take advantage of some great plugins like “relevant posts” or “most popular posts.” The names tell what they are. These are placed at the end of each post helping your visitors to know of some other great posts you have on your site. Also social networking plugins such as Twitter and Facebook are a couple of other great plugins to add to your website/blog. Plugins will make your blog more interactive and will also allow your visitors to find things easier!
Powerful Secret #6 Write For Low Relevant Competitive Keywords
YIKES! Keywords, low competitive keywords what is this you may be asking? For new bloggers this can be kind of scary, but don’t worry it can be something to learn and accomplished. Yes, even by you! (ha!) Keyword research is the most important part of blogging and writing your posts. You need to do some research on your keywords for your niche. Make sure they are relevant to what your blogging about. Keyword research needs to be completed before you do any writing because you don’t want to waste your time on something that is not going to work. You want to write for the low competitive keywords because it will be easier to get Google and other search engines to index your article.
Powerful Secret #7 Post Comments On Others Blogs
With this powerful secret for new bloggers it can’t be stressed enough the importance to visit other blogs in your niche. First you want to see what your competition is doing. Second you want to read their posts and make a comment. Make sure that your comment is relevant and meaningful not just thanks for sharing. Give your reason why you like or did not like the post and be honest but not nasty. The third reason for making comments is it gives you a back link to your website. The best back link effort comes from getting a prominent blogger to put your URL into his Blogroll.
Powerful Secret #8 Use Pictures and Videos
The use of pictures and videos in websites/blogs is another new blogger must do. The reason is Google and other search engines really favor the use of videos and pictures in website/blogs. Video marketing is a hot item now is they are easy for you to produce yourself. The best videos are produced from your own recording effort and putting in your own keywords for great SEO. However, you can still use others videos in your posts if you need or want. There is nothing wrong with using other people’s videos as long as the video works with your niche.
Many expert bloggers have several blogging tools in their arsenal to help separate their blog from the rest. This is an area that the experts don’t want new bloggers it know or to have in their tool belts. Being a successful blogger requires work, understanding that success does not happen overnight and to learn to how to find great resources. Being noticed about the expert bloggers comes with determination, investment of time, improving your skills and to remember to remain on the cutting edge. A couple great resources to use on your website/blog is Google Analytics and some great SEO tools. All in One SEO is a great one to use with WordPress.
Powerful Secret #10 Learn From Your Mistakes
To me this is the most important secret for new bloggers to remember. I have been there and have made many mistakes however; I have learned from these mistakes and have improved my websites/blogs because of these mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes, remember that! You may not realize that you made or make mistakes. You start blogging and work hard to get your website/blog going and don’t get any results. What you are doing is repeating some common mistakes. If you’re not making mistakes on your website/blog then you’re not working! You need to invest time on your website/blog. If something is not working, then change it, tweak it and then give it time to see if it works.
New bloggers need to remember that blogging involves planning and plenty of work to be successful. Learning the blogging secrets from the expert bloggers is fundamental to separating a good blogger from the thousands of other good bloggers. Experts do not want other bloggers to know these secrets for the one simple reason…you’re their competition. Their competition will grow and then make their task more difficult to stay on top.
